Welcome to the Serendipity website…

Dear Quilters,


A lot of you have been asking about our classes and we are pleased to say we can officially start them again.


Below are details and dates for our upcoming classes. Until 21st June we are restricted to just 4 pupils per class so please make sure you book as soon as possible.

If you have previously booked in for a class, your place is not guaranteed so you will have to book in again as normal. Booking can be done over the phone or in person in the shop. Full payment is required at time of booking.




Arrowhead with Erica

Friday 28th May OR Saturday 5th June 10am – 2pm


This is a one day technique workshop showing you how to make the Arrowhead Block using two squares sewn together and then sub-cutting them. A quick and easy technique that makes a beautiful quilt using either your own cut squares or a layer cake. Experience in cutting with a rotary cutter and sewing blocks together using a sewing machine is required.


From Basics To Beyond with Ruth

Fridays OR Saturdays (dates below) 10am – 1.30pm

£17.50 per session

(We are working this differently so please read carefully if you have been to Ruth’s class before.)



Fridays: 11th June, 25th June, 9th July, 23rd July, 6th August, 20th August

Saturdays: 19th June, 3rd July, 17th July, 31st July, 14th August, 28th August


Please choose whether you are a Friday or a Saturday, unfortunately you cannot do both. You can book in 2 sessions at a time. Payment is directly to Ruth on the day so please come prepared with the correct cash. You will not need to pay us when you book in unlike our other classes. Lunch is 12-12.30pm.


These flexible and relaxed hand sewing classes will teach you a wide range of techniques of Patchwork and Quilting, block by block. Working at your own pace, you will be able to make a full sized bed quilt or a smaller project of your choice using the quilt-as-you-go method. Pupils who have done this course before are more than welcome to return and work on new projects.




Curves with Ruth

Friday 16th July 10am – 2pm


In a Sampler quilt there is a block with pieced curves and new ladies always pull faces when they see it, thinking that it is going to be tricky after all the lovely straight edges they have been sewing together so far. Not so! Ruth will show you how to sew curves using templates and some useful tricks to sew a concave curve to a convex one. And by swapping the shapes and fabrics, as by magic, you will see birds appearing in the design.


Free Motion Quilting with Erica

Friday 18th June and 2nd July OR Saturday 26th June And 10th July

10am – 2pm


This beginners course will teach you how to set up your sewing machine to free machine quilt different patterns and then you will be shown how to complete a variety of different patterns. At the end of the course you will have your very own pattern book of designs to refer back to. Erica will show you how to construct the pattern book and how to add to this.  Homework will be to practice the designs and then the second part of the course will be to bring in an item to actually machine quilt. The previous courses were very popular, so please book sooner rather than later. 




Booking can be done over the phone or in person in the shop. Full payment is required at time of booking, apart from Ruth’s From Basics to Beyond classes. If we have to cancel the class for any reason, we will be in contact and issue a full refund. If you can’t make the class after all we can issue a refund up to 2 weeks before the class.
